Carb issues

January 2nd, 2021 09:02:30 pm, posted by Arthur Howenstein

Cleaned carb again. Finally got it started. Running smooth. Until I tried to turn it off. Bad dieseling. Tried adjusting the carb but would not stop dieseling when trying to turn off. Figured out the octane rating on the gas (Ethenol Free) I put in the new tank was only an 87 octane. With a 10.5 compression ratio, this car ran good only on Sunoco 260 or Hess 101. Bought some Shell V-Power Nitro+ and added Octane booster. Will try this out this week hopefully. I live in Acworth Georgia
